mylesEast Face  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Jul 22, 2009


Climbed a third-class chute on the east face, to the right of the one I believe is described in Secor. Fun climbing throughout.

Didn't see a register on any of the summits, but didn't look too long as lightning was striking over Seven Gables and the wind was heading it my way.

Lots of snow descending from Merriam-Royce col, so I'm glad I toted the ice axe.

Did both Royce and Merriam from the saddle, kind of a sand slog from the saddle, but at least its not to far...

Did these three peaks in a dayhike from the trailhead. Total time was 11:21 hours car to car.

Confused about the redspot on feather.

Slog up from saddle punctuated by the sounds of climbers on Merriam's north buttress. Descended obvious NW chute directly below summit with lots of rockfall potential.

Climbed south slope from Merriam-Royce saddle and descended northwest chute as part of Merriam-Royce-Feather dayhike. These routes are both chossy. 11 hr, 21 min roundtrip from Pine Creek trailhead. Beautiful weather and area!

Climbed southwest ridge from Merriam lake. Enjoyable class 2 , Far better route from this side than the saddle. Summited in about 2 hrs. but had to skip the traverse to Merriam peak when the storm came early. Great view.

Hiked up cross-coutry from the Honeymoon Lake via Royce Pass. Camped at the 3rd Royce Lake. Climbed the summit together with Jim Clement and Taras Usyk (San Diego, CA) and Jim's dog :-)) A Nice and lonely place.

thebeave7Route Climbed: Royce Lakes up the Southern saddle Date Climbed: July 20th 2003  Sucess!


Ran the day hike from L Lake across the valley. Approach around the lakes is a little rocky, and definately hot. It was a fun mixture of snow kicking and rock scrambling, but nothing to technical. Views are amazing in all directions from the summit, worth the climb.
